Netflix and Amazon Prime have revolutionized my life gently. I’ve always been a serial junkie, but since there is the possibility quite legal to watch all day series, it has become my absolute favorite activity – especially in winter when it is dark out early and the sun is rare to see.
Even last year I watched a lot of series and now I want to introduce my favorite series to you. Have fun watching!
A great series with historic elements. Ideal for all fans of the Nordic culture and their myths. It focuses on the story of the Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, the first Viking trips and the subsequent military conflicts in England, several Viking customs and political infighting. The Vikings in the series are also confronted with new ideas like the Christian faith. I was excited and look forward to next season!Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more!
(2) House of Cards
Kevin Spacey is simply an amazing actor and House of Cards a captivating series that sets out the machinations of the White House. A political thriller full of intrigue and power games. In my opinion one of the best series in recent years. I am very excited about the new season.
(3) True Detective
This series is from HBO and has impressed me more than once. A qualitatively high series: good story, great actors and wonderful music. Another masterpiece of HBO.
I love this series! Rarely I saw such a precise, perceptive and so modern series like Sherlock. Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Sherlock converts this story to our modern age, with cleverness and sympathy. I want the next season – immediately!
(5) Orange is the new black
Orange Is the New Black was the first series that I watched on Netflix. It takes place in a women’s prison with many different characters and their story. Such a funny and exciting series. Highly recommended!
The series deals with the rise of Pablo Escobar and the Colombian Medellin cartel to one of the most powerful drug cartels in the world in the 1970s and 80s. This series grabbed me immediately and I wanted to see more and more. Great characters and interesting theme. The Spanish language makes it even more authentic for me. Amazing!
(7) Jessica Jones
All Marvel fans simply need to watch this series. I just loved it! Krysten Ritter plays the eponymous lead role of Jessica Jones, a former superhero who gets by in New York as a private detective and is now overtaken by her past. Great action, strong actors and extraordinary Story. In a few days I finished watching. 🙂
So, these were my top series of the year 2015. What do you think, did I forget some?
For the future, I’m going to watch Mr. Robot, Chef’s table and Shameless. Do you have other suggestions?
